  • Footboard Bass

    October 15th, 2014
    footboard, music
    It would be nice to be able to play some sort of bass while playing mandolin. Organ pedals are kind of like what I want, though they're kind of expensive. What if I make something myself?

    The layout is Wicki-Hayden:

          Bb   C   D   E   F#   G#
        Eb   F   G   A   B   C#
    
    This makes it easy to play in a given key; the root, fourth, and fifth are all right near each other.

    I'm using the controller from a DTX 500 for generating the notes, but something that did octaveless bass would be better.

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
